“When Louise took my hand, I knew I would never be alone. The care my son received and the support we had as a family at the toughest time imaginable in our lives was truly a life-line", CHAS parent

Would you like to work with remarkable colleagues and meet extraordinary children and families? Would you like to be part of a team providing a flexible and responsive service, whilst delivering holistic person centred palliative care to babies, children and young people, in their own homes across the Grampian region?

This is a really exciting time to join Children’s Hospices Across Scotland – better known as CHAS – Scotland’s national children’s hospice service. Our multidisciplinary team of staff and volunteers share an authentic passion for delivering the highest possible standard of care to babies, children, young people and their families.

Following the expansion of our outreach team in response to the Pandemic, we have a Senior Staff Nurse vacancy in our CHAS at home, Aberdeen team.

We are looking for a dynamic experienced nurse seeking a new challenge, which will stretch them in a way that few other roles can? If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! 

As a Senior Staff Nurse within CHAS at home, you will bring valuable leadership experience to a small team providing specialist palliative care, end of life care and respite care for the child and their whole family in their own home.  You will have the opportunity to use your nursing skills and knowledge, complemented by the education, clinical supervision and 1:1 support we provide to develop both yourself and your team to deliver an excellent standard of nursing care and support in the community.

You will support the Senior Charge Nurses to oversee the work of the CHAS at home Aberdeen team, ensuring that resources are allocated appropriately and skills are used effectively in setting and maintaining excellent standards of nursing care. You will promote partnership working with the family, and other CHAS colleagues, as well as our colleagues in the NHS, local authority, other third sector organisations, and volunteers, to put the best interests of the child at the forefront of care.

Our children’s palliative care nurses report great satisfaction in being able to provide high quality nursing care in a supportive team with exciting career development opportunities.
